Egyptian children play Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists as they create a mock beheading video.
El-Balad A video identified as showing a group of Egyptian children carrying out a mock execution-style beheading has caused shock and dismay after being shared on social media in Egypt.
The seven children in the video were identified in a Facebook post by Egyptian freelance writer Tamer Abdo Amin as hailing from the Egyptian town of El-Mahalla El-Kubra.
In the video, two small children are shown kneeling before two larger children, who play at being jihadists and hold “knives” — wooden sticks — to their throats. Two other stick-wielding children flank the “prisoners” while another boy speaks to camera.
“We have no religion or nation. We slaughter children, women, and the elderly. We have decided the following — to kill all the youths of the town of [inaudible]. Slaughter then, o men!” the boy says. Then the two junior jihadis mimic an ISIS execution by pretending to behead the victims.
No heads were lost in the filming of this video
